So I bought a curved monitor to replace a pixel eating huge black spot on my old second monitor, oh well it was seven years old. So it’s a TCL 23.6 inch with an 1800R curve. I bought it from China and saved €40 but I had to wait two months and buy a €20 adapter. However it is absolutely super. The curve is subtle but noticeable. And all the windows are curved too. Just enough to turn it into cinemascope¹ YAY!
Yes I am very impressed. The colours too and clarity and contrast are excellent. It has a great effect because my main monitor is flat and so I get used to that, turn to the curved and um… it’s curved!
Yes very pleased. Oh and I fixed my speakers – got real bass now.
I bought it with the government’s christmas bonus.
¹ CinemaScope is an anamorphic lens series used, from 1953 to 1967, for shooting widescreen movies. Its creation in 1953 by Spyros P. Skouras, the president of 20th Century Fox, marked the beginning of the modern anamorphic format in both principal photography and movie projection.
I grew up with cinemascope.
